Sad news out of the music world today, as a genuinely beloved couple has called it quits.
TMZÂ has confirmedÂ that Ariana Grande and Mac Miller have broken up after two years of dating.
The artists have yet to confirm that their relationship has come to an end, but fans have jumped to the conclusion that their silence is currently speaking volumes.
After all, this was no mere fling.
Rumors of Grande and Miller getting married have been circulating for months, and the couple did little to discourage them.
Recently, there were even false reports that Grande was pregnant with Miller’s baby.
So if Ariana and Mac were still together, they would likely be quick to refute claims that they’d split up.
It’s not hard to see why fans are taking theirÂ lack of a statement on the matter as tacit confirmation that the breakup rumors are true.
Grande and Miller began dating back in 2016 and quickly made their relationship public.
In the years since, the two have been nearly inseparable.
As artists, they collaborated on suchÂ popular songs as “The Way” and “My Favorite Part.”
Those who know them best say Mac and Ariana were brought even closer by the 2017Â bombing at Grande’s concert in ManchesterÂ that claimedÂ 20 lives.
The tragedy remains a source of profound trauma for Ariana, and Mac was reportedly her primaryÂ source of support in the weeks after the attack.
There’s been no word on what caused Grande and Miller to call it quits, but insiders say the split was amicable.
According to TMZ, both parties have made it clear that “they love each other dearly and that will continue to be the case.”
Despite claims that they simply grew apart, however, the breakup does appear to have been sudden.
Just a few weeks ago, Miller publicly heaped praise upon Grande following the release of her latest single,Â “No Tears Left to Cry.”
We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.
